Ken Stone & Mark Taliano book launches in Hamilton- re SYRIA 

Long-time anti-war activist, Ken Stone, will launch his new e-booklet, “Defiant Syria”, at two separate public lectures in Hamilton next week. The venues will be New Vision United Church (November 15, 7 pm) and McMaster University (November 17, 12:30 pm). Both events are free.

Mr. Stone participated in the Second International Tour of Peace to Syria in mid-April, 2016, during which the group observed the Syrian parliamentary elections of April 13, visited Homs to witness the destruction and reconstruction, and were the very first tourists to be allowed on the site of the ancient Roman city of Palmyra, just liberated from ISIS by the Syrian Arab Army with Russian air support, just two weeks earlier.

Mr. Stone will be sharing the stage with Mark Taliano, a retired high school teacher from Grimsby, who recently returned from the Third International Tour of Peace to Syria in September, and whose i-book , “Syria’s War for Humanity”, is already posted on, where he is a frequent contributor. Mr. Taliano will show photos and videos of Maaloula, for example, an ancient Christian town, liberated from ISIS by the Syrian army, after the terrorists had laid waste to many Christian shrines and irreplaceable icons, which Taliano maintains are “part of the common cultural heritage of all humanity.”

Mssrs. Stone and Taliano will deliver powerpoint reports about Syria and afterwards will be available for a Q&A. Both their talks will focus, in part, on the propaganda war against Syria mounted in the West, and also the window of opportunity for peace in Syria afforded by a change of administration in the USA.

Mr. Stone’s e-booklet is now available on all major internet bookselling platforms, including Amazon, Kobo, and iTunes.

Below are the details of the two book launches:

launch #1: Tuesday, November 15, 2016, 7 pm. New Vision United Church, 24 Main Street West, Hamilton L8P 1H2, is located across from Hamilton City Hall and adjacent to the MacNab Street Transit Terminal. Wheelchair accessible.

launch #2: Thursday, November 17, 2016, 12:30 pm. MUSC 222 is located in the McMaster University Student Centre in the centre of campus. Also wheelchair accessible.

The double book launches next week are sponsored by the Hamilton Coalition To Stop the War of which Ken Stone is treasurer. For further info, please contact Ken at 905-383-7693 at home [email protected]
